Package: php-xml-serializer
Version: 0.20.2-3
Followup-For: Bug #759972

Dear Maintainer,

about the original failure reporded by Lucas (sometimes entities in
attributes get escaped twice), I am trying to get in touch with the
upstream author, see the last comment on

About the 6 failures observed by Prach, they may be caused by a change
in how PHPUnit passes the include path, as the errors are basically:

  Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required
  (include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in - on line 2'

By changing the way the test are run, i.e.:

  diff --git a/debian/tests_run b/debian/tests_run
  index 5c04a0d..ef007fa 100755
  --- a/debian/tests_run
  +++ b/debian/tests_run
  @@ -1,11 +1,9 @@

   set -e

   pear_pkg=`ls | grep XML_Serializer`

   cd ${pear_pkg}
  -cd tests
  -phpunit -d include_path=".:/usr/share/php:${PKG_ROOT}" AllTests.php
  +phpunit tests/AllTests.php

the tests _run_ correctly, however they would still fail because
deprecated syntax warnings pollute the output.

I have fixes for the deprecation warnings but I am waiting for the
upstream to comment on the double escape issue.

I'll report back whan I have more info.

Ciao ciao,

Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
